AH--if you are using the Angband build and main--xxx.c system, a windows port is easy. I'd be happy to make one, given a link to the source, and a place to drop the excutable.

The character I was actually going to post as the comp character was a Thunderlord Dark-Priest serving Melkor. I have no idea what gameplay that translates into, but it sounded cool! I named it after the gryphon rider hero in Warcraft 2.

That actually sounds really interesting! It's not a combo I've ever played, but... {fires up a game} Ah, yes, they have Necromancy at 0.800... The Necromancy spells aren't that great but the abilities (press 'N') includes a thing called "Touch of death"...

I'm not sure if it actually works, but if it does, it's pretty amazing, especially if you're going to the dungeons of super-leveled monsters. (At a lesser level of Necromancy you can also get 'Undead Form' to let you avoid death... maybe.)

Priest (hasn't been one of those forever), maybe Dwarf? Standard artifacts - there's already plenty of talk about randarts going on, and the aim here is to find all the issues that need resolution before release. So a very vanilla Vanilla game.

Why not make it a half-orc for variety's sake?

Sure, good plan.

The source is on GitHub here: https://github.com/tome2/tome2

Do not that I'm using CMake, there is a basic command line in the README.md on how to compile using MinGW. (AFAIK it's been a while since anyone's tried it, but it should basically work. It's not there's loads of changes to the build system...)

If you can manage to build it, feel free to send the executable as an attachment to bardur@scientician.net
